Actually, turns out that using an hdfs URI for the JT works just fine. 
The problem turned out to be elsewhere.

(Gory details:  I was instantiating my Job with an empty configuration, 
and then later setting properties on it (like the JT host/port).  Turns 
out that Job decides *at instantiation time* whether the job will be run 
locally or remotely, based on the contents of the JT property.  So my 
setting the JT on the job's config after the fact was too late and had 
no effect.)
